As the Young Professionals Network of Muscatine celebrated our 7th year as a professional organization, the current Leadership Council wanted to take the opportunity look back and recognize the young professionals who have helped, and continue to help, develop the organization into what it is today, and continue to provide professional leadership to our community. To recognize these individuals for their achievements, YPN has developed a Young Professional of the Year Award.
The inaugural Young Professional of the Year Award for 2012 went to Brandy Olson. YPN is proud to recognize her as an individual who was instrumental in the development and success of the Young Professionals Network of Muscatine. The organizational skills and leadership that she has brought to the table helped to attract young professional leaders to join the first Leadership Council. The professional knowledge of organizational structures and governing documents were vital to the operation of YPN. Her knowledge and involvement in our community helped to attract young professionals from many professions throughout our community.
Brandy has also shown their leadership skills throughout our community for many years. She has been involved with the Business and Professional Women organization and served as President in the past, and was also a state officer for the Business and Professional Women of Iowa. She is the Past President of the United Way of Muscatine, and currently serves as the President of the Muscatine Community Y Board. She has also served on the Civil Service Commission for several years as well as many other committees’ throughout Muscatine.
Congratulations Brandy on a well-deserved achievement and thank you for all you have done for YPN!
